Hollow Knight: Silksong screenshot of Hornet fighting against a boss

Ever since Hollow Knight first released and became a massive success, Team Cherry has been teasing us with small updates about the upcoming DLC starring Hornet. It was initially supposed to take place on the same map and mostly differentiate itself from the original game through Hornet's unique moveset, story and a couple of additional bosses. However, as the project went on and quickly grew in scope, Team Cherry decided to scrap the DLC idea and instead create a fully-fledged sequel - Hollow Knight: Silksong.

Silksong will bring with it a giant new kingdom to explore, over 150 new enemies and bosses to fight against, a wide-variety of new abilities to toy around with, and naturally, a whole bunch of upgrades to collect. And if you find yourself looking for even greater challenges, you might be glad to hear that Silksong will also offer a brand new post-game mode that "spins the game into a unique, challenging experience"

You can get a bit of a peek at what all of this looks like in-game, as well as what Hornet's moveset has to offer, in the recently posted trailer down below. Have a look, it's quite a gorgeous one:

No release date has been given just yet, but you can expect Hollow Knight: Silksong to arrive on Windows, Mac, Linux and Nintendo Switch. As for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions, no details have been given just yet, but I think it's safe to say they'll be coming after a bit of a delay.
